I am a storyteller and poet. Memories and moments catch me, hold me hostage until I confess all that I see there. I strive for connection, for truth, for a glimpse of stark beauty in the mundane. Now, in these frightening days, when cynicism and disbelief permeates our world, I believe it is up to artists to resurrect our humanity. To help us grieve, to give us a safe space to dream. This is my goal.
